JB: Sounds like you're keeping your options open. I have no problem with that. Now that you've published Small Blessings, do you have any plans to refill your bucket list?
MW: When I was a kid of thirty or so, I remember hearing Jimmy Buffett singing a song about how he'd rather die while he's living than live while he's dead. That's pretty much my mantra as I zoom through my late sixties.
That aside, I have no plans to refill my bucket list. Yet...
JB: I'll stay tuned. Good luck with the paperback launch. I loved Small Blessings; I was totally engaged and think our readers will agree. Thanks so much for talking with me. I enjoyed myself immensely!
MW: Well, hot dogs! And back at you as far as enjoyment goes! Thanks so much for asking questions that made me think!
JB: Music to my ears, Martha, music to my ears.
